This week in Jetsetter, Sony's Shuhei Yoshida says that the PlayStation 4's 2013 world tour may not make it all the way around the globe, with the new console skipping Japan. Meanwhile, Austria's Nordic Games discusses the future of Darksiders, the franchise saved from THQ.
Blizzard shocked the world when it showed up at Sony's February PlayStation reveal event with Diablo 3, and now we've seen and been sold by the reality of a console version of the game.
DuckTales was one of the best looking and most memorable games on the Nintendo Entertainment System. Capcom brought yet another gussied up level from DuckTales Remastered to E3 2013 and the game is shaping up nicely, even if it's lost some of its old school style.
Sonic's been appearing on Nintendo consoles for over a decade now but Sonic Lost World may be the first time Sega's old mascot is looking better than Nintendo's own titles.
DayZ, the new zombie survival simulator based on the popular ArmA 2 mod from 2012, came to E3 2013 in a rough early build, but even now the game is promising. Looking past the broken AI, missing features, and the missing, vital multiplayer content, a fascinating game can be glimpsed.
Do we really need another dark fantasy action RPG? Yes we do, according to City Interactive, and their game Lords of the Fallen makes a compelling case. An early version of the game betrayed its inspirations, but it also showed promise for being a huge amount of fun.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 makes the jump to the Fox Engine, the new tech powering Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. The new gear doesn't seem to be enough to topple FIFA Soccer, Electronic Arts' all-powerful rival to the Pro Evolution Soccer series.
Super Mario 3D World seeks to save the Nintendo Wii U in the same way that Super Mario 3D Land rescued the Nintendo 3DS. An E3 2013 showing of the game doesn't make the most convincing case with a game that seems too familiar to reinvigorate a tired audience.
Pac-man returned to form in Pac-man Championship, but now Namco's getting experimental again with the 3D platformer 'Pac-man and the Ghostly Adventures.' The results? Pretty sweet. The game is sunny antidote to the endless parade of stoicism in other console action games.
Airtight Games and Square-Enix have been plugging away on horror noir 'Murdered: Soul Suspect' for years now, and the 2014 game is looking promising indeed. Detective Ronan O'Connor has an unusual task for a video game hero: He has to solve his own killing.
Eidos Montreal is resurrecting yet another classic action role-playing game in Thief for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Steampunk burglar Garret impresses in this brief E3 2013 demo, but the studio has many kinks to work out and much to prove before the game's 2014 release.
The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is a direct sequel to the legendary Super Nintendo game A Link to the Past, but despite a similar look it's a dramatically different game. An E3 demo shows off how Nintendo has created a Zelda that is refreshingly direct and challenging.
The sexy witch covered with guns named Bayonetta may not be the hero Nintendo's Wii U needs, but she's certainly the one it deserves. We go hands-on at E3 2013 and find that Platinum Games signature action game is preserved in fine form, even one Nintendo's peculiar controller.
Nintendo extended an olive branch to its downtrodden hardcore fans with a new Super Smash Bros. at E3 2013, debuting new characters like Mega Man and the Wii Fit Trainer. The game's not an immediate fix Nintendo needs for a comeback, but it did look charming.
Square-Enix brought two long-awaited, long-delayed sequels to Sony's PlayStation 4 at E3 2013. Final Fantasy XV is joined by Kingdom Hearts III on Sony's new console. Final Fantasy XV, though, is actually the former PlayStation 3 exclusive Final Fantasy Versus XIII.
